Your prayers have been answered – it’s a brand new episode of Go Fact Yourself!
In this episode…
George Hahn is a writer and media personality. He was dubbed an “urban raconteur” by The New York Times. He’ll tell us about how he earned the nickname by heavily criticizing New York City… only to fall back in love with it after he left. Plus, he’ll share some critical fashion tips and discuss how he was cast as “Great Looking Guy” on “Sex and the City.”
Alexandra Petri is a Washington Post columnist. She got her start at the publication as an intern, writing uncredited articles and having a very unprofessional outgoing voicemail. Alexandra’s newest book is Alexandra Petri’s US History Important American Documents (I Made Up). It includes falsified versions of this country’s history – like how “Sesame Street” characters were involved on D-Day.
